DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Horror Thriller - Very similar to the original movie except this one has more adventure and fewer snake attacks, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. It spends quite a bit of time setting up the story, introducing the characters and getting to the snakes, but once you're there thing get action packed, suspenseful and very entertaining.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average The movie, however, is competent at a basic level, doing a good job of using its locations and a hard-working, fearless cast. The beautiful Salli Richardson-Whitfield continues the great tradition of the late Fay Wray as she struggles to escape the clutches of danger, and Mathew Marsden, obsessed with the millions to be made from the new drug, is suitably treacherous. The movie is competent formula entertainment, but doesn't make that leap into pure barminess that inspired 'Anaconda.'

USA Today Full Review
Average At least director Dwight Little (Free Willy 2) gives us enough B-movie speed to keep Orchid from becoming a fountain of aging.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 134 moviegoer opinions. For this type of movie, I would say these are pretty good opinions. They're not great, but for a movie about giant snakes, they're certainly not bad. Surprisingly, women rated it about the same as the guys. I believe that's because it actually has a fairly entertaining story, fewer giant snake scenes and some good suspense.

Will you like it? About half of you will enjoy it very much. About half of the remaining half will feel it's an OK/average movie. The rest of you will not enjoy it much. I suspect many of these lower opinions came from those who are not fans of this type of movie. They came with a person who is a fan.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Set deep in a primitive Borneo jungle, where an extremely rare red orchid - the "blood orchid" - may hold the key to producing a youth-preserving serum. When a gung-ho group of scientists embark on a treacherous journey into the jungle to find the orchid - in the hopes that a fountain-of-youth discovery will make their careers and their corporate bosses a lot of money - they quickly realize that more than bad weather and heavy undergrowth separate them from their treasure.

Within the mysteries of the jungle lies a deadly predator that keeps the secret of the orchids safe and stops anyone who dares to enter its territory from leaving…
